Manchester City are looking to get revenge on Tottenham Hotspur when they lock horns in an epic English Premier League battle on Thursday.

Manchester City are part of the elite clubs to remain unbeaten in the Champions League and are confident ahead of their clash against Sevilla.

Pep Guardiola’s side have already qualified for the last 16 and sit atop Group G with 11 points, 3 more than second-place Borussia Dortmund.

Sevilla are in third with 5 points while Copenhagen’s Champions League dream was ended by a 3-0 defeat to Sevilla last time out.

The La Liga outfit were completely destroyed by City in the first leg as they went down 4-0 at home and now face an uphill task at the Etihad.

City will be confident of success again on Wednesday as they have won 81% of their Champions League home games since Guardiola took charge in 2016.

A return to the Europa League is in store for the six-time champions, who could do with a morale-boosting triumph after slipping into the La Liga relegation zone.

Sevilla have failed to win any of their last six away matches in the Champions League, including five draws and one defeat.
